"My hair is past my waist, so I have the same problem. A bun is so big that the hoop catches it when I duck out, and a braid is thick and in the way for neck hooping (plus it's so long my hand grabs it instead of the hoop for float ups). This is…"
"i wish i had this problem lol. I chopped off my long hair around christmas of last year and am in the process of letting it grow back out. it's barely past my shoulders! Will definitely be keeping this in mind for the future!"
"This is the bane of my hooping existence, I swear!! I have long dreads that come halfway down my back and when doing duckouts or shoulder to shoulder or vertical duckouts....the longest dreads will literally wrap around the hoop like a spiral of…"
":-) Right on. I want to get better at braiding too and experiment a bit more with it. You could potentially wrap braids around your head hairband style, fishtail, etc. and there's the potential to add flowers, beads, and ribbons interwoven for…"
"I have very long and medium thick hair and it is frequently a problem. The best hair-do for me to keep it out of the way (and very pretty too!) is a french braid all the way to the end, then I roll the end of the braid fruit roll-up style into a bun…"
"-gasp- this could actually work for my hair!Thanks for posting!I was beginning to feel as though my hair getting in the way would actually convince me to cut it.. but this will get it fully out of the way for the times I really want it out…"
"I've made a couple with 1/2" tubing and they gap a little when I open them so I just push that 1/4 " back together. It's fine. Lots of people use 3/4" infinity folding hoops and they're fine. It doesn't seem to be…"
"Yes, that was what I was wondering about. So the connectors are not a special kind or anything? And how does the hoop stay together then through vigorous hooping without any rivet or pop button? I've been agonizing over making…"
"I've never seen pop-riveting on an infinity hoop. They're made by putting in two connectors opposite each other. The tubing has to rotate on the connector so it can't be riveted in place, unless I'm misunderstanding what…"
"I am very interested in the infinity style. I have been taking a stab at collapsibles with bungee lately and having limited success. I think that the bungee is going to become loose, and this is going to cause all kinds of repair work…"
"I know this probably won't help much with your bungee cord problem, but I've had lots of luck with infinity style collapsible hoops. I've made tons of them and have one that I take everywhere with me as my everyday and travel hoop and…"
"I've made a lot of different collapsible hoops but I've never made a bungy cord hoop. The reason is that the cord will loose it's tightness overtime making the cord loose. So as you hoop at a high speed the section can come apart…"
This december, when school is out, I plan on getting back in to the groove and learning some new moves as well as practicing some old ones! I also want to make some furry boot covers or leg warmers for next year.... I'm excited!
